Since 1980, the number of diabetic cases has increased worldwide

Diabetes cases jumped from 108 billion in 1980 to 422 billion in 2014, and data show that small and middle-income countries, such as China and India, were hardest hit by growth. According to a report published in the April 6 issue of The Lancet magazine, diabetes rates have jumped from 4 to 9 in the world, with one in every five to one in all. lead author of the study, Majid Ezzati, professor at Imperial College London. "Increasing aging and obesity mean that the number of diabetic patients has increased dramatically."
Statistics are not selected for type 1 and type 2 diabetes, but 85 to 95 percent of adult diabetes cases are type 2. That is why the significant increase is probably due to the spread of type 2 diabetes, which they are often associated with obsession.
"Unfortunately, our most important risk factors for type 2 diabetes are the obesity and the efforts to reduce the rising incidence of obesity have so far failed," added Professor Ezzati. "Identifying people at high risk for diabetes would be particularly important, as the onset of the disease is lifestyle change, can be prevented or initiated by a healthy diet or medication. "
Compared to Western Europe, diabetes rates are rising more steeply in low- and mid-income countries, such as China, Egypt, India, Indonesia, Mexico and Pakistan. According to the authors, no country has experienced a decline in the rate of diabetes.
